Fairy Tales

My preschooler is in his first school play tomorrow. For the past week, I have asked him about his lines, what they are and whether he knows them. Whenever I ask him about his lines, he leans in close to me and whispers in my ear, "It's a secret." But see, when he said "secret," he really meant "The script came home two weeks ago and you stuck it into my cubby without another thought. I don't know my lines because you haven't told them to me yet. You are failing at this mothering thing."

The play is tomorrow. I rehearsed his lines with him today at lunch. Fortunately, the play is a common fairy tale and I can tell his teachers have been working with him on his lines. He recited all four of them like a champ. He's all set. We will go over them some more this evening just to make sure he has them committed to memory then I can relax and look forward to the overload of cuteness on tap for tomorrow.

So, so cute! He's so adorable. It's encouraging to see how happy he is in pictures after you've finished three years of law school. You must be doing a lot of things right!!

He must be about the same age as my preschooler son who is 4.5.

Thank you, Catherine. Bubba is 4.5. He is growing up so fast. I wish I could freeze him at this age - or at least slow it down some. :)
